'09 Gary's Improv
This rich, fruit-forward wine offers intense aromas of ripe cherries and vanilla. Blackberry jam and mulled spice flavors linger on the palate. The densely layered and complex flavor profile and subtle oak influence integrate with the soft tannic structure, ending in a long and satisfying finish.
The 2009 vintage was picture-perfect in the Napa Valley with overall temperate conditions and few swings in either direction. Late spring brought a few light rains that took the pressure off of irrigation. The region experienced less rainfall than is typical and relatively few truly hot days. The result was beautiful ripened fruit across all varietals.
Grapes for our 2009 Gary’s Improv Zinfandel were sourced from the Saviez Vineyard in Calistoga. This wine was aged in a blend of 30% new and 70% second fill American oak barrels for 16 months.
